(Expanded Top Finishers Table)
(that is just not significant enough to merit a note at the top of an article on a hugely important topic. arguably ACFNATIONALS doesn't even need a page, but I don't mind it having one.)

'''ACF Nationals''' is an annual event held by [[ACF]]. Along with the NAQT [[ICT]], ACF Nationals is one of the two tournaments which determine a national champion each year in collegiate quizbowl.
  
More information on editors and circumstances of ACF Nationals can be found at the [[ACF]] page. ACF Nationals was first held in 1991, though it is the successor to prior events such as the [[National Invitation Tournament]] and [[All-American Invitational]] which date back to 1979.

More information on editors and circumstances of ACF Nationals can be found at the [[ACF]] page. ACF Nationals was first held in 1991, though it is the successor to prior events such as the [[National Invitation Tournament]] and [[All-American Invitational]] which date back to 1979. Considering the three events as one chain of "ACF-style" national championships, ACF Nationals is the oldest national title, at 36 years as of the 2015 tournament, and the longest-running, having surpassed the College Bowl [[NCT]]'s 28 instances. Counting ACF Nationals alone, the event had its 25th instance in 2016 (as no championship was held in 1992).
  
Considering the three events as one chain of "ACF-style" national championships, ACF Nationals is the oldest national title, at 36 years as of the 2015 tournament. It is also the most frequently awarded -- the 2015 championship will be the 33rd (no tournament was held in 1986, 1987, 1990, or 1992). ACF and its predecessor organizations surpassed the College Bowl [[NCT]]'s 28 instances with the holding of ACF Nationals in 2011.
+
Beginning in 2008, ACF Nationals crowned Undergraduate and Division II champions in addition to overall champions. Unlike at NAQT ICT, the Division II title is awarded to the highest-finishing Division II team in the overall field, rather than being played in a separate tournament. Unofficial winners by the current criteria are noted for pre-2008 tournaments, when known.

For most of its existence, ACF Nationals was smaller than ICT, and was open to any collegiate team, provided that most of those teams [[Packet submission|submitted a packet]] (unlike ICT, which had a strict system of invitations and was written entirely by NAQT personnel). In 2015, in part due to exploding interest in nationals attendance, ACF instituted the [[A-Value]], a measure which generated a list of Nationals invitees based on teams' performance at the preceding [[ACF Regionals]]. As of now, the Nationals field is capped, and teams are invited by having a large enough A-value for the year, or by being issued autobids for hosting or editing Regionals.

ACF Nationals is an annual event held by ACF. Along with the NAQT ICT, ACF Nationals is one of the two tournaments which determine a national champion each year in collegiate quizbowl.

More information on editors and circumstances of ACF Nationals can be found at the ACF page. ACF Nationals was first held in 1991, though it is the successor to prior events such as the National Invitation Tournament and All-American Invitational which date back to 1979. Considering the three events as one chain of "ACF-style" national championships, ACF Nationals is the oldest national title, at 36 years as of the 2015 tournament, and the longest-running, having surpassed the College Bowl NCT's 28 instances. Counting ACF Nationals alone, the event had its 25th instance in 2016 (as no championship was held in 1992).

Beginning in 2008, ACF Nationals crowned Undergraduate and Division II champions in addition to overall champions. Unlike at NAQT ICT, the Division II title is awarded to the highest-finishing Division II team in the overall field, rather than being played in a separate tournament. Unofficial winners by the current criteria are noted for pre-2008 tournaments, when known.

For most of its existence, ACF Nationals was smaller than ICT, and was open to any collegiate team, provided that most of those teams submitted a packet (unlike ICT, which had a strict system of invitations and was written entirely by NAQT personnel). In 2015, in part due to exploding interest in nationals attendance, ACF instituted the A-Value, a measure which generated a list of Nationals invitees based on teams' performance at the preceding ACF Regionals. As of now, the Nationals field is capped, and teams are invited by having a large enough A-value for the year, or by being issued autobids for hosting or editing Regionals.
